80 stories!?!? That is a possible supertall, I knew Jorge would go big but wow.... The view of these towers from The Area 31 bar at The Epic Hotel will be even more insane!

They weren't kidding when they said Southern Florida is booming.

Is Laundered Money Fueling Miami's Condo Boom?


Five years after the South Florida real estate market collapsed, Miami is once again going nuts for condos. Developers are putting up 35 buildings as you read this, and another 83 are waiting in the wings, according to a report in today's Wall Street Journal. The city also ranks third in the nation for permits issued for multi-family developments (New York and San Francisco rank first and second, respectively).

With its million-dollar starting prices and emphasis on pre-construction sales, this boom may feel like déjà vu, but today's Miami developers are demanding that buyers put down at least 50 percent before closing. That's a lot of up-front money, and the Journal says it's coming from "foreign investors who typically pay cash." The story doesn't tell us much more about exactly who all these foreign investors are, which is probably because one of the most persistent yet difficult-to-prove stories about Miami right now is that its condo-building renaissance is fueled by international criminals laundering money.

We could have 4-4 Super Talls by the end of the decade….!

In a few years Miami's 2 tallest buildings could be named "One Brickell" and "One Brickell CityCentre"....

Ironically, one of the main tenants that will be displaced when the current building is torn down? The FBI.

Miami is booming. Let's hope these get built.

Current site of One Brickell
The current site of the One Brickell project is a building that stands at 444 Brickell Avenue currently called "River Gate Plaza" since it sits directly on the Miami River:

Related closed on the purchase


Related Group paid $104 million for 444 Brickell Ave. site

By Martha Brannigan

Miami-based Related Group, with its joint-venture partner GTIS Partners, closed on the $104-million purchase of a four-acre site that includes 444 Brickell Ave. and an office building behind it. .

Related last week unveiled plans for three tall towers, including residential, hotel, office, and retail space, at the prime location where Brickell Avenue meets the Miami River. Related’s chief operating officer Matt Allen said it will take years to develop the project, dubbed One Brickell, which will entail “well over $1 billion’’ in investment.

GTIS, a New York-based real estate investment firm, has teamed with Related on other projects. In a statement, Allen said Related has “enjoyed a long-standing relationship with the partners of the firm.’’

blurb from an interview with Related's director of condo development. We'll have to wait a few years to see this one but it should be coming:


We bought The Capital Grille site, which I think is the best site in Brickell. We’re going to be developing that over the next three or four years. It’s three towers with fantastic architecture on the mouth of the Miami River

Very, very nice.

I like the look of the buildings, but bit disappointed that they're under 1000 feet...

Complex to be built in phases with the tallest tower on Brickell Ave to come last (the existing office building fronting Brickell Ave has leases with 7-years left on them).

Excerpt from the following article:


Existing at the site is a 10-story office building and parking garage. The building’s ground level is home to Capital Grille.

The overall project is to include three new towers, offering hotel and residential units, a centrally located podium atop a new parking structure, about 25,000 square feet of retail uses, and 40,000 square feet of office floor space.

Bernardo Fort-Brescia, founding principal of the architectural firm Arquitectonica, went through a presentation of site plans and renderings for One Brickell.

The three-building complex will form a courtyard, and the towers will have ground floor retail. Restaurants are also planned, as are two swimming pools. Loading is to be in the lower level of the central area.

The tower closest to Brickell, to be constructed in the final phase, is to be home to a five-star hotel with about 250 rooms and apartments on the upper floors.

The hotel lobby will be on the ground floor to activate the street, said Mr. Fort-Brescia, and planned restaurants too.

In addition, the entire frontage along the river is to be lined with “significant restaurants,” he said. By opening up the property along the river, the developer anticipates plenty of activity – “biking, jogging, parents with strollers” – said Mr. Fort-Brescia.

Review board member Fidel Perez had high praise for the development.

“This is a great project for Miami… an icon for the mouth of the river,” said Mr. Perez.

Carlos Rosso also spoke on behalf of The Related Group.

One Brickell will be built in two phases, he said. The two towers furthest from Brickell Avenue will be constructed first and at the same time, beginning in 2015, he said.

Of the residential back towers, one will be condo and one rental, he said.

The third tower will come in phase two. There is no timeline, he said, saying it “depends on the market.” Offices in the existing 10-story building have seven-year leases.

The final tower will probably be the tallest on Brickell and serve as a signature piece on the river, said Mr. Rosso.

Plans for One Brickell are expected to be reviewed in January by the Miami River Commission.
